lyrics

Spend all of your time staring up
at all the store displays.
You’ll miss all the things
within your reach.
I recall all the ways that you were
a kid in a candy store.
The world had filled up your eyes,
and you couldn’t look away.

Take the time, to pry away from your desires
And try to find something real that doesn’t just catch your eye.
Then never look away
Then never look away

Time and time again you still fall
for sleight of hand magic shows.
The act is always the same,
but you never seem to care.
I can tell all the ways you still are
a child off in your own world.
You went where you pleased,
and it’s led you astray.

Take the time, to pry away from your desires
And try to find something real that doesn’t just catch your eye.
Then never look away
Then never look away
